We connect promising, expansion-stage companies with receptive investors
As an angel investor and investment banker since 2000, and serial entrepreneur since the 1970's, Bryan Emerson has developed a network of over 46,000 investors, entrepreneurs and business professionals. Most are fellow finance professionals who run venture funds, private equity funds, investment banks and family offices and who, as individuals, enjoy investing personal money in angel rounds of promising companies too small for their corporate funding.
How we help growing companies:
1: Scroll through your industry sector here.
2: Review the company website links there and note which funds and firms would be most likely to fund future rounds of investment for a company like yours
3. For confirmed conference presenters who give us at least a few weeks advance notice, we email those individuals and invite them to get to know your company now, for possible angel investment. This way, the progress of your company is on the radar of these financial powerhouses far earlier than would otherwise be likely.
Once registered, we send you pre-conference preparation documents. Afterward the event, we email you the contact information of all who registered for your follow up.
Starlight Capital can provide to presenting companies after each event staff who will email the registrants and encourage each to set a Calendly appointment with those presenters.
What's in it for Starlight Capital?
1. A percentage of these participating entrepreneurs use me as their investment banking professional through Great Point Capital (FINRA/SiPC), a broker-dealer and registered investment advisor, in the future when they are ready for a much larger round of investment;
2. A percentage refer other entrepreneurs to us;
3. A percentage hire us for additional services, such as business writing, consulting, and board positions.
We have built our business on long term and synergistic relationships, referrals, and follow up services, sometimes many years later: how can we help you?
